Crochet Witch Hat For Cats

Since Halloween is coming up soon, we decided to make a costume for the cats.  My daughter and I have crochet witch hats that I made a few years ago.  We decided that a crochet witch hat for cats would be a great Halloween project! 

This pattern is not much more difficult than some of my other cat hats.  You will start by crocheting a cone for the top of the hat.  After that you will make the ear holes and the brim by continuing to work in the round.  The band is a rectangle that is crocheted separately and sewn on.   

For this project I used a 5.0mm crochet hook and red heart super saver yarn.  If you need to adjust this pattern to fit your cat I would recommend using a larger or smaller crochet hook to slightly alter the size.

Repeat row 2 until the band is long enough to fit around the hat.  For me this was 34 rows. 

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.  Sew the band all the way around the hat. 

My cats were not as excited about this hat as we were.  I promised them that I will make something for the dog to wear to make them feel better.
